Abstract and Keywords

This chapter attempts to outline possible contributions that continental philosophy can make to the epistemology of theology. It begins with an extended engagement with Nicholas Wolterstorff in order to argue that continental philosophy need not be viewed as inherently hostile to philosophical theology. Indeed, there are reasons to think that continental philosophy should be understood as an important resource for philosophical theology and philosophy of religion. With this meta-philosophical framework in place, possible specific ways in which continental philosophy might contribute to discussions concerning the epistemology of theology are then discussed. In particular, the chapter focuses on debates concerning foundationalism, experience, revelation, and realism/anti-realism.

Keywords: continental philosophy, Nicholas Wolterstorff, new phenomenology, deconstruction, foundationalism
